Today’s Smart TVs are really smart devices that offer their users many interesting features.
You can install different services and programs on them. They can also communicate with your mobile devices or computers. It’s really very convenient.
In addition to this, many wireless features are built into modern TVs, such as Wi-Fi receivers, various sensors, cameras that recognize gestures, and Bluetooth technology.
Including many of these features, are implemented in Hisense TVs
What is Bluetooth on a Smart TV
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology that allows devices to exchange information when they are connected.
It is usually present by default in different cell phones, tablets, or computers. This technology allows many devices to connect to your gadgets wirelessly. For example, wireless headphones or speakers.
Since the Bluetooth range is very small, you can only do this with devices nearby. If you move a few feet away from the device, the signal may start to be interrupted or disappear altogether.
In the case of Smart TV, there may also be Bluetooth technology present. It can have a variety of uses, depending on the device. However, it is most commonly used to connect wireless audio systems or headphones.
With this, you can output sound from the built-in speakers to your portable device. This is very convenient because it allows you to customize your audio system and make it as convenient as possible for your needs.

What to do if your Hisense TV isn’t equipped with Bluetooth
There are also Hisense TVs that simply don’t have a Bluetooth transmitter. These are mostly older models. If you need to connect a wireless device to your TV anyway, the easiest way is to see if it can be wired.
Most speakers and soundbars have the ability to connect with a 3.5mm wire. This isn’t an ideal solution as you will have to do a lot of cable management. However, it does work.
If a wired connection isn’t an option for you, there is another trick you can use to connect your device to your TV. You will need to purchase a special Bluetooth audio transmitter for the 3.5mm input.
Bluetooth audio transmitters are very inexpensive and their main advantage is that they allow you to use your wireless speakers not only with your TV but also with any other device that has a 3.5mm jack.
These types of electronic devices plug into your TV’s headphone output and can transmit their sound wirelessly to nearby Bluetooth audio receivers. For example, wireless headsets, portable speakers, and even hi-fi equipment.
How to add a Bluetooth adapter to your Hisense TV
This will usually be a small device that will run on regular batteries.
These will fit into the headphone jack on your TV and you can also connect them using a 3.5mm jack cable. After turning it on, you will need to pair it with the speakers or headphones you want to use.
To do this, simply turn on the detection mode on both devices until the connection is established.
